Pants-shitting hysterics v. facts

Gonzo prefers hysterics:

Emotion is what wins arguments, and there is a tremendous amount of emotion among those fighting to reduce gun violence — there always is when someone gets hurt or must go through the tragedies that we experience in this country as a result of gun violence.

That is important emotion, and it will do more for the argument for stronger gun laws than any facts or figures ever will.

We have to show legislators the human side of this issue, too, and force them to base their own decisions and policies off of that emotion…

Not really news.

    Note: “force them”
